We are celebrating 20 years of science impact
Solving the mysteries of bioscience
Foundational Science Fuels Breakthroughs
Inspiring Next-Generation Scientists
Supporting open access to real-world science resources, research, and experiences.
Access free education resources and open data — developed with our scientists — to teach neuroscience, immunology, and cell biology
Guide students through experiments using our cutting-edge resources, including data from real human brains and healthy human stem cells, without the need for specialized laboratory facilities. Students only need an internet connection and computer to use our scientific resources – making our world-class programming easily accessible to most schools.
We offer resources for educators and students at the high school and college level developed in partnership with teachers and professors to ensure they are relevant to achieve current learning objectives.
Watching my students work with real data from the Allen Institute has reframed the way I think about bringing research into the classroom.
